  1. 1. Integration of Design for Environment in the vehicle manufacturing industry in Sweden : Focus on practices and tools

    Författare :Sofia Poulikidou; Anna Björklund; Per Wennhage; Sara Tyskeng; Mattias Lindahl; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Design for Environment DfE ; ecodesign; vehicle design; DfE tools; ecodesign tools; product development; integrated product development;

    Sammanfattning : Design for Environment (DfE) promotes the systematic consideration of environmental aspects during product design and development. Despite the maturity of concepts and tools in literature, efficient implementation in industries is reported to be low. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Product development with a focus on integration of environmental aspects

    Författare :Johan Tingström; Jan-Gunnar Persson; Thomas Magnusson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Product development process; innovation; integration; environmental considerations; DfE Tools; DfE Mindset; product developmen; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Environmental awareness has increased during the past 2-3 decades, and companies have gone from simply following legislation to adding environmental considerations into their business plans. The ongoing developments make it interesting to study how leading companies integrate environmental considerations into their product development processes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Assessing design strategies for improved life cycle environmental performance of vehicles

    Författare :Sofia Poulikidou; Anna Björklund; Per Wennhage; Gregory Keoleian; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vehicle design; Design strategies; Lightweight design; Electric vehicles; Design for Environment DfE ; DfE tools; Life cycle assessment LCA ; Simplified LCA; Composite materials; Planering och beslutsanalys; Planning and Decision Analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Vehicle manufactures have adopted different strategies for improving the environmental performance of their fleet including lightweight design and alternative drivetrains such as EVs. Both strategies reduce energy during use but may result in a relative increase of the impact during other stages. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Engineering Designers' Requirements on Design for Environment Methods and Tools

    Författare :Mattias Lindahl; Margareta Norell Bergendahl; Tim McAlonone; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; Design for Environment; Methods and Tools; Requirements; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Given a special focus on Design for Environment (DfE) methods and tools, the objectives of this thesis are to, “Identify basic design-related requirements that a method or tool should fulfill in order to become actively used by engineering designers”, and to “Investigate how those basic requirements could be used to make DfE methods and tools more actively used in industry among engineering designers”. The research has shown that designers in general have three main purposes for utilizing methods and tools, of which the last two could be seen as subsets of the first one. LÄS MER
